Safeguarding children


  Posted by: Dental Design      26th June 2020

Professor Richard Welbury CBE will be presenting in the Core CPD Theatre at the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show on “Safeguarding and why it’s a priority for the dental team”. About his session supported by the BSPD, he says:

“There is a huge amount of decay in our current young population. The diagnosis of dental neglect is relevant when you have identified decay in a young patient, who is then not brought back into the practice to complete treatment.

“I will focus on dental neglect, but will also discuss the signs to be aware of that could suggest physical abuse on the head and neck. Dental professionals need to know these because they examine more children in their working life than a doctor. They need to know what to look for and who to go to for help. We might be relatively new to safeguarding children, but we have a very important part to play.”


The next British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show will be held on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd May 2021, Birmingham NEC, co-located with DTS.
